1. Help them prepare.
If you're reading this article, then you've got the first one in the bag. Since building a dance career is essentially building a freelance business, preparation is key, and it involves more than taking dance classes.
You can help your dancer prepare their professional materials, like headshots, resume, bio, website, and or social profiles. These are things they'll need to market themselves as professional dancers. You can also help with researching where to live, whether or not a college or grad program is best for them, job boards, agents, and more.
There's plenty to learn when it comes to becoming a professional dancer, and you can show your support by helping your dancer get his or her ducks in a row.
